CAS Organic

Hi there! My card today is for the Splitcoaststampers CAS challenge. Today was a sketch challenge & I just love this sketch given to us by Mary (Stampercamper). Mary is an awesome stamper/artist; she's a SU demonstrator & strictly creates with only SU products. I often go to her blog and SCS gallery for ideas when I get a new SU stamp set. It has been a very long time since I have played a SCS challenge. I am finding a little more time for this hobby as I am adjusting to my new job (now 4 months).

My card base is Neenah Solar White cardstock (heavy weight). The other papers are SU! Blushing Bride and Old Olive with the Basic Grey DSP from the Offbeat line. (I {heart} 6X6 paper pads). The stamp is an acrylic from Studio g (Hampton Arts). The bling half circle is from Heidi Swapp; I've had it for so long I was afraid that the adhesive wouldn't be any good- but not so, it was perfect.

I picked up this stamp set to make some cards for DD#2 who is seriously involved with an environmental protection action group at her college campus. Both of my daughters asked me to create a boxful of cards for them. So that is one of my projects over the next several months. You'll probably be seeing lots of birthday and thank you cards along with general notecards.That sure made a Mama feel good!

Have a great week, dear friends!

Hugs, Marilyn
